I can't answer your question, but "unicorns and rainbows" is a great description of the feel of HCS jams. I was listening to the 04/02/73 Boston Garden a couple of months ago and was impressed. Segue via space is into Me and Bobby McGee.

Yes sir Lou,that is one of the finest segue's I have ever heard the band pull off,and both the Here Comes and Bobbie McGee are standout versions.

yeah, i love that 4/2/73 transition. some artful space happening there. and, though i personally enjoy it sometimes, i think that the "unicorns and rainbows" vibe may have been what ultimately took Here Comes Sunshine out of the repertoire in '74. Wake of the Flood got some negative reviews at the time for being too "hippy dippy" and i suspect that HCS, Birdsong, and others were axed from the set lists in favor of the material that suited the more funky, jazzy, and aggressive feel of '74. that, and the perilous vocal harmonies and somewhat clunky song structure. good while it lasted, though. classic '73, imho.
